I would love to live in Robert J. Peterson’s imagination for a day. His novel, The Odds, is an imaginative post-apocalyptic chess game to the death blended with The Hunger Games in a universe filled with mutants, monsters, and cell phones more deadly than any bomb. In other words, entirely awesome. My second venture into a Peterson world, Omegaball, is no less imaginative, out there, and highly entertaining but in a completely different way.
Killing Hope is the story of Hope, a young Native American woman fleeing her reservation after everyone she meets begins trying to kill her.
Rebirth of the Gangster is a noir comic book series about the children of a group of criminals, specifically, how they relate to their parents’ history and how they interact with that legacy themselves.
Bounty is the story of sisters Nina and Georgie who, years ago, were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy. Now, they find themselves on the other side of the law, scraping by as bounty hunters. It’s no secret that Bounty writer Kurtis Wiebe is a giant nerd and an RPG aficionado. As his series, Rat Queens, is a love letter to Dungeons & Dragons and other fantasy RPGs, Bounty feels the same for many a science fiction tabletop RPG, like Shadowrun and Wiebe’s own system, Gadfly, as well as '90s Anime including Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop.
The Detail is what happens if a Telltale-style adventure game had a love child with a comic book and a police procedural. It’s a magnificent video game series that’s simple in its artistic depiction, but more than makes up for it with an incredible score, complex characters, and an abundance of charm.

Best. Comic. Ever. Joyride is a fantastic ride that couldn’t follow up on its first issue any better. Every element and theme I wanted to make a return did, and the character and world development I wanted to see was the meat at the center of this excellent second issue.
Rebirth of the Gangster #1 is the story of Marcus Thompson, a rich black prosecution lawyer who is swept into a life of crime. Described by writer CJ Standal as Breaking Bad meets The Wire meets Othello, the series is steeped in noir roots but charges forward with a modern take on these stories.

Erik Burnham and Dan Schoening are back! After a year and a half of Ghostbusters miniseries, the dynamic writer and artist duo have returned to telling stories about our boys and girls in grey in a new, ongoing comic series. Picking up where 2014’s Mass Hysteria and the crossover miniseries with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the 1990s The Real Ghostbusters cartoon left off, business is getting back to normal. Or is it?
